Wheeler, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, will be excused payment of federal income tax on $25,200 of his annual retirement pay on grounds of disability. Formal Army orders say Wheeler has been "determined to be permanently unfit for duty by reason of physical disability of 70 per cent" Wheeler, 62, will retire early in July after a record six years Muskie Backs Moratorium On Pollution WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Edmunds a Muskie says he wants to give air polluters threeyears to clean their smokestacks and exhaust pipes as part of a control package that would include some type of national emission standards. The Maine Democrat predicted passage of significant air and solid waste laws by Labor Day. Proposed legislation is being drafted on Muskie's air and wa- tor pollution subcommittee. Muskie told newsmen Tuesday an air pollution bill probably would combine air quality standards with some limits on emissions. "We're trying to work out something that would avoid the built-in traps of national standards," Muskie said. The chief difficulty is mat metropolitan areas require tougher controls man nose needed in rural areas. -He said flie chief air polluter is the automobile. He indicated such steps as strict traffic controls and new techniques in highway planning will be needed to supplement whatever pollution control devices become available. He said air standards would be pegged to health hazards but said any legislation would contain a clear statement of future national goals going far beyond mat Muskie criticized as inadequate the $4 billion the Nixon administration seeks over the next four years as the federal share of a $10-biltion waste treatment facility program. He commented in advance of testimony today in which Senate Jlican Leader Hugh Scott 'ended the Republican effort and said the $10 billion is "sufficient to meet all municipal waste treatment needs through 1970.** In his prepared testimony Scott defended strongly the water-pollution attack outlined by the Nixon administration. Miss Maryland Entries Prepare For Pageant COLLEGE PARK, Ml. (AP)Contestants in the Miss Maryland Pageant are scheduled to irrive on the University of Maryland campus today in prep(ration for a two-day pageant iompetition beginning Friday' The 19 young women, mostly tern Maryland, will be judged in official Miss America pro* liminary categories on the basis if competitions in evening gown, iwinmiit and three-minute tal- mt presentations. They will be leaking the title of Miss Maryland and the opportunity to rep- 'event the state in the Mis* Unerica Pageant at Atlantic at*. in the nation's highest military post · Although he suffered a heart attack in September 1967, Presidents Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard Nixon each later extended him in the JCS chairmanship for an extra year. When asked for specific information on Wheeler's disabilities, the Army replied that "information contained in medical records is privileged and therefore exempt from public release." The Army said 70 per cent disability means that $2,100 a month of Wheeler's retirement pay will be income tax exempt Such exemption percentages are based on active duty salary. Wheeler , now draws $3,000 a month as JCS chairman. The Army said the determination of disability in Wheeler's case was made by Maj. Gen. Kenneth Wickham, its adjutant general, on behalf of Secretary Of the Army Stanley Resor. The adjutant general acted on the recommendation of an Army medical board, a physical evaluation board and the Army Physical Review council, it said. How, if Wheeler was so disabled, did he perform his function as JCS chairman? The Army was asked. It replied: "Your question should be referred for answer to the secretaries of Defense who recommended him and to the presidents who appointed Gen. Wheeler to serve as chairman .. .and at whose pleasure he continues to 'serve; and to the Senate which advised and consented to the appointments." QUACK TALK - When 5-year-old David Zeuner gets tired of the chit-chat from the humans around him, he wanders outside his home and has a quick-quack with his bird friends.

John L. McMillan, seeking renondnation to his 17th term, failed to win a majority in Tuesday's Democratic primary and could be forced into a runoff with a 38-year-old Negro physician. The physician, Dr. Claud Stephens, said he would not decide whether to call for a runoff until he studied the vote. Mcmillan, 72-year-old chairman of the House District of Columbia Committee, far outdistanced his three opponents Tuesday but fell 719 votes short of the majority needed to eliminate the possibility of a June 23 runoff. A surge of late votes for Stephens from predominantly Negro areas in late vote counting took him into second place and cut McMillan's margin from a majority, in the unofficial totals. Returns from all 295 precincts in the 6th District gave McMillan 25,911 votes; Stephens of Kingstree, 11,399; Bill R. Craig, 36, a white Hartsville attorney, 11,171, and Olin Sansbury Jr., a political science instructor at the Universityof south Carolina's Florence center, 4,060. A recount is expected. The major issue raised by McMillan's opponents was a charge mat he spent more time involved in District of Columbia affairs than with his own district CAMBRIDGE; Mass. (AP) Harvard President Nathan S. Pusey says' the nation's campuses are being disrupted by student and faculty extremists bent on destroying the existing higher educational system. Addressing seniors at the university's annual baccalaureate ceremonies Tuesday, Pusey said those he cited had revived the 1950s methods of-the late Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy, rousing "hate and anger" for their own purposes. "Now, less than 20 years later, our campuses.are experiencing a not dissimilar period of torment whiplashed as they are by a resurgence of his hateful technique," declared Pusey, who was himself a target of McCarthy in 1953. He said the campus unrest was stirred by "extremist groups of the New Left made up of students and-- I am sorry to acknowledge- also of some faculty who for reasons not quite clear to me would like to see our colleges and universities demigrated, maligned and even shutdown." "Always they insinuate, distort, accuse, their aim being not to identify and correct real abuses, but always rattier by crying alarm intentionally to arouse and inflame passions in order to build support for 'nonnegotiable demands,* and, by this means, to enlarge their following and enhance their power." Pusey, who is retiring next June, recalled coining to Har- vard in 1953 after having served as president of Lawrence Col lege in McCarthy's hometown of Appleton, Wis., where he had opposed the Republican senator's successful re-election bid in 1952. "As long as I remained in Appleton he had taken no public notice of mei" Pusey said, "but when I came into the light of the Harvard presidency I was quickly numbered among his targets." Labeling McCarthy a "symbol of chicanery, deceit. i. and diabolical evil," Pusey said the late senator used the "big lie" technique of Adblph Hitler, and that the current extremist groups follow the same course. Pusey concluded that some of the blame for the current state of affairs must go to those in the academic community "who, like the honest burghers of the Weimar Republic, peace-loving, tolerant with no desire to impose their views on others, have been unwilling to pass critical judgment on any of their kind." a Agriculture Bill Approved By House WASHINGTON (AP) - The House has approved and sent to the Senate a $7.4 billion Agriculture Department money bill. The bill, passed by a voice vote Tuesday, includes $2.5 bil- ion for special food programs including food stamps for needy families and milk and lunch programs for needy children. Draft Board Raiders Get Jail Terms CHICAGO (AP) - Seven antiwar activists have been sentenced to five years in prison for destroying Selective .Service records. Three absent defendants, whoa federal judge called ringleaders in Die action, were given 10-year sentences. In pronouncing sentence Tuesday, Judge Edwin A, Rob son of U.S. District Court dismissed a defense contention that tit g demonstrators' action was nonviolent He said the raid Mfey 25, 1969, on a draft board complex was "violence, Die violence that can bring about revolution.** He said he hoped the penalties were severe enough to deter other youths from staging; similar attacks on draft boards. The three defendants wlio disappeared in the final days of their trial were sentenced to five years on each erf two counts, the terms to run consecutively. Judge Robson said these three masterminded the assault on the Southwest Side draft offices where some records were thrown into a bonfire and paint was dumped on others. The seven in court also were sentenced to five years on each of two counts, but Judge Robson said those terms would run concurrently. The judge denied appeal bond for the seven defendants present He said the disappearance of the three others was a major factor in his decision. The seven have beeri in Cook County-Chicago jail sirrce their conviction by a jury Priday. Louisiana Solon Favors Stronger Rioting Curbs WASHINGTON (AF) - A Louisiana congressman says most Americans share his view that police should have used their guns during two outbreaks of violence at last November's massive antiwar protest. "I think it's popular in America," Rep. Edwin Edwards, D- La., said Tuesday of his contro- venial stand. "I just have to be- *lieve that Americans feel criminal acts have to be stopped.** His position was opposed by Washington Police Chief Jerry V. Wilson and Sen. Edward M Kennedy, D-Mass. Kennedy today said, "We must learn welt the lessons of how we can allow and encourage dissent without citizen violence, and how we can maintain order and safety without official violence.*' Edwards, considered a political moderate in his home state, said originally during a hearing Tuesday of his House internal security subcommittee that he saw "several instances where gunfire was not only justified by required." He later told a news conference he was not advocating the police should have fired into a crowd, but he stuck to his "not Judging will be conducted ^ridsy and Saturday nights at be TaiweB/Tine Arts Center. he j^s imryland Scholarship oopjsration with the university's Dr. Spock Involved In Dublin Rioting DUBLIN, Ireland (Art - Police darted with Mwfajt demon, ftratori acrewning, "Down with Faecirt Spock" duriflK * ·peach by Dr. Benjamin Spock In Dublin's Mantion How* Tueeoay night Polke ejected two girls from the hall and clashed with other demonatratort. outside the build- Ing who tried to crash the ing. the tire sole "This sandal has sole!"

Edwards, who said he is running for governor of his state, said gunfire in such situations was justified "only because they repeatedly refused to cease and desist what they were doing.'* Discipline is the key to quelling such violence, he said. At the hearing. Rep. Louis Stokes, D-Ohio, took issue with Edwards, saying police should not assume the role of "judge, jury and executioner** during demonstrations. The discussion on the use of guns came after Wilson showed the subcommittee a police film of the moratorium. Wilson, who was on hand at the two instances described by Edwards, said he knew of no in- U. S. Maps Israel Aid In Mideast Conflict WASHINGTON (AP) - The Nixon administration is putting together a program combining military supplies and political action to meet what it considers the growing danger of Soviet armed intervention on behalf of Egypt in the Arab-Israeli conflict. The program- still to be decided on finally- is expected to include the sale of warplanes to Israel, but also intensified efforts to work out a formula with the Soviet Union for peace talks between Israel and the Arabs. Consideration has been given to a new cease-fire call, limiting arms sales in the Mideast- and perhaps some forceful gesture of U.S. support for Israel. One possibility would be a publicized visit to an Israeli airfield by U.S. jets. Officials concede virtually all ideas for an American initiative have been turned down by Moscow or failed in some other way in the past. Nevertheless, they said if the crisis is to be controlled familiar devices will have to be tried again and again. Secretary of State William P. Rogers told the House Foreign Affairs Committee Tuesday of one of the latest failures of U.S. policy. He said it was decided in March to hold off on the Israeli request for planes "in the hope that it would set a pat- tern of restraint in the Middle East." Yet, about a month after the decision was made, Soviet pilots began flying missions in Egypt's interior, covering such strategic points as Alexandria, Cairo and the Aswan Dam. In addition, increasing numbers of Soviet soldiers began manning antiaircraft missile bases. In the face of this, Rogers said, the delay on the Israeli request is being reconsidered. "There will be a decision on this matter before long,*' he told the House committee, although he later ruled out any change before the weekend. Another failure Rogers did not mention, since it involved private diplomatic exchanges, is the failure to get any assurances from Moscow that its pilots in Egypt are limited to interior defense missions. U.S. and Soviet officials are scheduled to meet again Friday but the future range of Soviet military activity in Egypt's defense is not expected to be clarified. The Nixon administration fears that at some point Russian pilots will extend their operations into the combat zone covering the Suez Canal. This would either mean Soviet-Israeli clashes and casualties or an Israeli backdown. Israeli leaders have said, however, they intend to defend the Suez front regardless of who fights on the other side. stance in which police have used their guns. ' He said his force handled breaks with a minimum -of force, and with a strategy*of dispersal. "It is not me job of a police officer to punish anyone,** Wilson said. : Kennedy said violence between Americans "is unequivocally unacceptable as a mode-of expression, a means of dissent, or a tool of vengeance." In a prepared statement, .Tie said the demonstration showed ft is possible to hare massive dissent without a threat to security. : /Veu? Grass; Developed In Israel EILAT, Israel (Art-- A wonder grass with multiple uses and a promising commercial future has been developed in Israel's Negev Desert. Its growers claim it can reduce water pollution, cheaply substitute for wood pulp in the production of high-quality paper and do many more things. Dr. Hugo Boyko, who died in May, developed the reed-like vegetation called juncus-espar- to, using desert sand and plentiful underground saline water. Just before his death Boyko said tests in Scottish and English paper mills had yielded excellent results. The mills thought so much of its qualities that they applied for the complete harvest once it reaches an economically profit* able level of 10,000 tons annually, Boyko said. He indicated that Israeli production within the next few years will be much higher. "Fin not trying to tell you that the juncus is going to completely replace wood pulp for papermaking," he said. "But the market for high quality paper is so great that we will have absolutely no trouble selling our entire production no matter bow large it becomes- and we shall be able to cover millions of desert acres now empty and unused." Boyko said the grass can puri- y urban or industrial waste water by breaking down noxious compounds or destroying harmful micro-organisms. ; * "Water filtered through the' grass is clean enough to drink," the scientist asserted. The grass has found other- uses in pharmaceutical laboratories, as a dairy fodder, in the manufacture of woven mats, askets and wicker furniture, in tiie production of plastic sheets and as an insulating SAVE2WAYSATSINGER « " Save $ 50 on this Stylist zig-zag machine by Singer with Pacesettercabinet.
